Our Practice

Our partners have handled appeals before the United States Supreme Court, the federal courts of appeals, state supreme courts, and administrative tribunals. We have represented clients on appeal after conducting the trial below. We are also frequently retained by clients to brief and argue appeals in matters where we did not participate at trial. In such cases, we provide a valuable fresh perspective and are able to develop new legal theories and strategies while working collaboratively and effectively with trial counsel.

Trial and Litigation

A rare combination of experience and structure provides Massey & Gail clients with uncommon litigation firepower. Our partners have decades of experience working on high-stakes, complex matters that require innovative strategies and analysis. We have tried cases across the country and in every type of forum – state and federal courts, administrative tribunals, arbitrations, and other dispute resolution proceedings.


We provide serious and careful evaluation of the costs and benefits of different routes to resolving business disputes. We identify our clients’ near-term and long-term business objectives and customize a plan to meet them as expeditiously as possible. We develop tailored game plans located at the appropriate point along the spectrum between strategic negotiations and full-scale (but efficiently managed) litigation. We also help our in-house clients manage outside counsel in particularly large or fast-paced matters.
